The Associated Press reports that Antoine Walker is eyeing a return to the NBA.

Walker last played in the NBA in 2008, and his return to the game could be at least partially motivated by finances. In November, Walker agreed to pay more than $900,000 to settle bad check charges with three Las Vegas casinos.

Walker was a three-time all-star with the Boston Celtics and won a championship with the Miami Heat in 2006. He played briefly in Puerto Rico during the 2009-10 season. http://www.suntimes.com/sports/basketball/2239754,antoine-walker-nba-comeback-05.article

Think he can actually make it back?

Nope, and if he wasn't out of money he wouldn't be thinking of making a return.

I hope he is a FA during this offseason. Then it will make these last 2 seasons of increasing cap space worth it.

Don't think any fan really wants to pay tickets to watch the great legendary Antoine "no bending of the knees when I jack up 8 3-pointers in a game" Walker.

haha. seriously. I was at a game once where the Celtics got a 3-1 break, and Toine decides its in his teams best interest to pull up and shoot a 24 footer.

Antoine walker could make 10 shots in a row and i'd still be shocked if he made the an 11th.

I didn't think he had a shot back when he was "productive"

He was cut by a Puerto Rican team (http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/04/antoine-walker-is-a-free-agent-again-released-in-puerto-rico.php), what the **** makes him think he can return to the NBA. And I will echo everyone by saying he royaly sucks and is a fat idiot.
